Rules For Taking Leftovers Home On Thanksgiving
You know there will be some, so here are the rules for taking leftovers home on Thanksgiving! Listen closely because certain people have different rules. Every situation is different as we come to find out on The Mike & Carla Morning Show!
When you have a lot of people over for Thanksgiving Day dinner, there tends to be some leftovers. But what is the etiquette for taking anything home that you might like?
This is a very sensitive issue and can create some awkward moments near the end of what some might think is the perfect holiday get together. You have to tread lightly here. That’s why The M&C Morning Show opened the phone lines and suggested listener call in or even text in.
What Are Your Rules For Taking Leftovers Home?
Now on the morning show, we have our own opinions of how this works. The general consensus was that it’s up to the host to decide what stays and what goes. However, when it comes to a bottle of wine or booze, that is a “gift” and should never be taken back!
When we say it’s up to the host, that means if he or she doesn’t want that specific leftover, then that person can return it to the person who brought the dish saying, “…here, you might want to take this home, we have plenty!” Some might take that as a slap in the face or an insult. Stating that you don’t care for that particular dish…but don’t take it that way!
Everyone has there limit of food in the fridge and sometimes you can only fit so much. The other point that was brought up is what kind of dish did you put it in? Was it something disposable? That has a huge bearing on the leftover.
Just know that there is some great information in this segment. Take a couple of minutes, listen to it and maybe, just maybe you might learn something! Oh, and enjoy…Happy Thanksgiving!
